Since 2002, Virginia Folklife has supported more than 100 pairs of masters and apprentices from fiddle makers to dancers.  On Sunday, May 5, Folklife will present this year’s Apprenticeship Showcase in Charlottesville.  WMRA’s Chris Boros went to Dixon Studio in Staunton to meet the team of master stained glass artist Ronald Dixon and his apprentice Todd Hinkle.
